The Town is completing this assessment to select a preferred solution to meet the Town's need for water storage and distribution in Camperdown, Thornbury and Lora Bay. The project will follow the Municipal Class Environmental Assessment (MCEA) Schedule ‘B’ process to evaluate various alternative solutions to meet the Town’s current and future needs. 

The study will consider the social, environmental and financial impacts of each alternative.  As part of the MCEA process, the public and key stakeholders will have the opportunity to review and provide feedback. Once the preferred solution is identified, the Town will develop preliminary engineering designs.

Why Now?

As expansion continues on the west side of the Town, the water storage and distribution network must be upgraded to ensure that water service and pressure is maintained in the area.


Project Updates

The preferred solution identified through the EA process is to rehabilitate the Victoria Street Water Tower, and construct a new reservoir at 10th Line Booster Pump Station with upgrade pumps. This solution will be presented to Committee of the Whole and Town Council for approval.
